This is one of my best songs IMO. Enjoy! This will probably be track 2 on my second album that I'm working on.

Not bad man

This got some pretty cool riffs in it, drums went along well with them..and the odd-time part was nice, adds some prog influence along with the clean part. Only thing I didn't like was how the solos kinda just stopped at certain points abruptly, they need to flow better..adding vibrato to the notes, and you MUST put delay on your solos, and a little reverb...that's what makes a solo sound like, well, a solo lol
And I'm guessing you don't own a bass, I can hear a midi bass...which sounds fake (obviously, because it is lol) but I can't fault ya for that, I've been there, but I found an alternative by detuning my guitar with an effect down an octave. Try that man.. or buy a bass haha

All in all, not bad man, the mix was pretty good rhythm wise, solos sound a little loud, but thats just me..

Thanks man for your review! I actaully do own a bass, but I can't get it to mix very well with the rest of the recording. But i may try that, I've been thinking about using that method by tuning it down an octave and using a clean effect. i AM tired of using a midi bass. Yeah man you're right, I do need to start using delay. My music really lacks delay but thanks for your tip, I could use a little advice. Yeah I decided to add a clean part just for fun kinda lol, I may re-do the solos in alot of my tracks eventually.
